Focus Tip – Hemi-Sync

Transcript: [spoiler]

Jon Bennett:  Hello, Jon Bennett here with “Three Steps To Conquering ADD‑ADHD,” and in this video I’m going to share with you one of the products that I use when I’m listening to my headphones.

I’ve been doing a series of videos on different choices for music ‑ white noise, binaural beats, that type of thing… When you’re trying to focus in on the task at hand and really block out the environment that you’re in. Even if it’s a quiet environment, there are certain things that you can do to focus in on the task at hand.

One of those products is called Hemi‑Sync, and this is one of my favorites because you can actually… It’s the weirdest sensation, but you put your headphones on and you play these tracks, and you can feel your brain doing something weird. It really does help focus.

They use binaural beats, but I’m not going to go into great detail on how this works because I’ve got a video I’m going to show you right now, but this is their website at hemi‑, you can check that out.
I’m going to play the video for you because they explain it better than I do, so here you go.

Maria Monroe Whitehead:  Hello, I am Maria Monroe Whitehead, chairman of Monroe Products. Welcome to this digital presentation of our product catalog. Over the next several minutes, I will introduce you to our Hemi‑Sync technology, and give you a concise overview as to its ability to act as a powerful tool in developing our human potential.

Hemi‑Sync is short for hemispheric synchronization, and it refers to a safe, time‑proven audio‑guidance technology that has many applications for your daily life. My father, Robert Monroe, who was a pioneer in the field of sound research, developed Hemi‑Sync.

The patented Hemi‑Sync technology has been researched extensively and has been scientifically and clinically proven to be effective. Those interested will find many professional and research papers available to download from our website.

Moreover, we have continued to refine and further develop the Hemi‑Sync technology and its many applications for 50 years.

In brief, the audio‑guidance technology works through the generation of complex multilayered audio signals, which act together to create a resonance that is reflected in unique brain wave forms characteristic of specific states of consciousness. The result is a focused whole‑brain state known as hemispheric synchronization, or Hemi‑Sync.

Hemi‑Sync has achieved international acclaim for its ability to help people achieve a more satisfying life. Specific combinations of Hemi‑Sync signals, for example, can help individuals achieve laser‑like focus and concentration. In fact, many of our concentration titles are even reported to be helpful to those with ADD, ADHD, or other learning challenges.

Different Hemi‑Sync signals may be used to facilitate profound relaxation, or to help you manage stress. Still other Hemi‑Sync mixes may be employed to promote deep meditative states for exploring expanded states of awareness. We even have Hemi‑Sync titles to assist you in attaining a good night’s sleep.
The Hemi‑Sync process can be quite effective when delivered over conventional speakers. In fact, it has been delivered over conventional speakers for many years. In the classroom, for example, to help students focus at various Hemi‑Sync workshops where participants explore meditative states, or with speakers placed on either side of the bed for sleep enhancement.

Most of our research, however, has evolved around the classic use of Hemi‑Sync delivered by stereo headphones. In this application, the Hemi‑Sync audio‑guidance process works quite simply by sending different tones to each ear by stereo headphones.

The two hemispheres of the brain then act in unison to hear a third signal, the difference between the two tones. This is not an actual sound, but an electrical signal that can only be perceived within the brain by both brain hemispheres working together. Allow me to demonstrate.

First you will hear a tone in your right ear. Now we will play a tone of a slightly different frequency in your left ear. The slight differences in the tones cause your brain to create a third sound, a wavering sound that is not on the recording. This tone is the difference between the tones you are hearing in your right and left ears.

These wavering sounds encourage your brain to move from functioning in a state of random brain wave activity, which looks like this, to a balanced, focused, and highly synchronized brain wave pattern, which looks like this.

Using an analogy, we can say that your brain normally acts like a light bulb, which produces random, incoherent light. With Hemi‑Sync, your brain acts more like a laser beam, which produces focused, coherent light.

Hemi‑Sync produces a focused, coherent mind, which is in optimal condition for improving human performance. Imagine what this enhanced whole‑brain potential can do for you.

Jon:  OK, so you get the idea. You can check out the rest of that on their website, but I did want to share a couple of the tracks that I have in my focus play‑list.

If we go to Hemi‑Sync… OK. “Transcendence Non‑Verbal, ” this is a really cool one. They have some tracks that… They’re talking to you, I guess they’re putting you into a meditative state. Those I tend to stay away from.

But the “Transcendence” is really cool, and the “Between Worlds, ” I really like that one. And “Einstein’s Dream.” You can check that out on their website. Again, Hemi‑Sync is one of my favorite choices to pump through my headphones when I’m focusing on a project, trying to get some things done.
You can also use it when you’re trying to read a book, or just simply block out noise from the outside world and focus in on what you’re doing.

I hope you enjoyed this, I encourage you to check it out. Let me know how it goes. Talk to you soon.
